Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Cathedral City Lunch Pack Confirmed sighting: Cathedral City Lunch Pack
Posted: 21:44 Wed 01-Mar-2006. Price: "Dunno - wifey bought it". Location: "Probably Asda, as she works there!". Nutritional unusualness: Packaged in a Protective Atmosphere.
"ymmit" reports: Four slices of medium flavour cheddar cheese, a generous pot of Branston, and four Jacobs Cream Crackers - this is the Dairylea Lunchable for Grown Ups. Found it in our fridge, hope wifey didn't want it for itself ["herself", surely? - Snackspot] as it didn't last long - very more-ish. Branston tastes like Branston, the Jacobs crunched nicely despite being refrigerated, but the cheese was very Cathedral City - just mature enough not to be labelled "mild". Still a very pleasant experience and the ultimate in convenience cheese!

..."ymmit's" first official sighting highlights increasing competition in this field, what with the recent arrival of Kraft Philadelphia Splendips, and Kerry Foods adding a Cracked Black Pepper and Spiced Onion Chutney option (1.69/ 90g) to their Golden Vale Brunchettas range. While, in other Branston-related randomness, "Rich" discovered the "With Sausages" version of those controversial Branston Baked Beans for 79p in Sainsbury's, Calne, Wiltshire, announcing: Haven't tried em yet, they're for my tea later - followed by a possibly ominous lack of any further news.

Comment: Lack of news is due to wife eating said beans and sausages.

Her comments are "They were probably alright"

Comment: Splendips rule...how VERY dare you! (not a Catherine Tate fan in the least but 'Mr Plop' deserves it)...anyway I would't buy this "CRAP" because it features 'medium' flavoured cheese 'MEDIUM' give me a break "SNACKSPOT" - when hear the 'Cathedral City' brand name I expect quality mature cheese...give us real cheese fans a break, surely????

Comment: Easy tiger - a medium cheese eater I may be but I only need telling once! And even if Splendips are the tastiest thing on Earth the name is still silly.

Comment: The name is ludicrous.

Comment: The bruchettas are still the nicest, especially the new cranberry and soft cheese version (less than 5% fat too!), yummmmmmy!

Comment: Brunchettas suck - the bits of bread are too hard and small, the cheese is tasteless and the pickles are chemical tasting - the cranberry one is especially vile.

Worst thing is, we've not been able to get the cath city ones since the one pack I had so /she/ has gone and bought brunchettas instead.

Comment: The problem with these sorts of snacks is that once you have taken off the protective packaging (enough for a nuclear power station i might add)and container, the portion size is pitiful!

Comment: I'm in brunchetta heaven - the red pepper and onion ones are to die for but in the shops round here they only ever have the much disappointing branston ones!! God bless Mr Ali round the corner who has given in to my constant nagging and gone straight down the red pepper and onion route! I LOVE YOU! 41511 7

Comment: Cathedral City Cheese is rather nice isn't it?
Posted: 10:09 Mon 04-Dec-2006 by "snacker" # permalink comment
Comment: oh brunchettas are divine, especially the crnberry and soft cheese one. The ploughmans one is rather nice too. Catherdral city is just okay, but rather un-inventive!

Comment: It's hard to beat cheese on toast or a nice cheese sandwich, try making one for supper before you snooze off at night, you'll enjoy it
